A small taste of what’s to come…

 Here’s our Q and A session with Timothy!

 Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A. Becoming another character is not about getting into that characters head, but rather letting him get into yours! To become another person you must immerse yourself in his world, understand how he thinks, but more important, why he thinks that. To do that research before taking on a role is critical. Whether it be delving into a book, or history, or, if possible, meeting the person to understanding who they are. Once you have grasp of the character you merge your thoughts with his and you begin to “character think”, the person you have become starts to develop his own thoughts. Once the mind has merged the body will follow and you will have now become the role. When on set, the wardrobe usually helps complete the transformation. Which allows the character to flow through the lines and not the acting saying the lines. Sometimes, it is necessary to get in character before camera rolls to have an easy transition. I will many times, ad lib lines to myself as the character to clinch the roll right before going on set.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Cary Grant and Jackie Chan are two of my favorite actors. Cary had incredible versatility, able to go from a goofy ball to a the suave and debonair heart throb very easily. Jackie Chan, was\is, simply brilliant. Not only was he a great martial artist, he developed his own style of entertainment which has been unmatched since.

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character? 

A. I don’t necessarily have  dream roll. I want to help create new things that no one has seen before and tell a good story! A story that uplifts, or motivates, or challenges people to be better.

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. I prefer to play the hero. Being the Villain can be fun but with so much negativity in the world I love to play the person people would look up to!

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A. My first dream was to play professional soccer! At 17 I toured Italy with a US team and in April 2011 I blew my knee out which destroyed my chances.

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. On film I haven’t had a hard roll but in high school I had the lead in the senior play and becoming a smooth, cool character was hard for me since I was the awkward dork in high school.

Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. Most fun roll was when I actually played a villain in  short student film. First fight I choreographed so that made it special. It had an extended woods chase scene with an epic ending battle.

A sample of Timothy’s work-

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. I had taken 4 years of drama in High School but no formal film training.

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Decide!! If you want to do something do it 100%! Don’t “give it try” or “see what happens”; decide whether or not you want to be an actor and then give it everything you have!

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

I would be doing entrepreneurial work!

A Moment with Crowley’s Tomb…Troy Williams

I am pleased to announce that actor Troy Williams has landed dual roles such as one of Pushers street gang Thugs” and the Evil Witch Doctor “Mortas”.  Film production begins summer of 2017.

Troy tried to throw us a defensive block, but we ran through with this Q&A:

Troy Williams_1

Q.  Given what you know from the cast & crew posts about CT, what and/or who are you most interested in seeing in the film?

A.  There are so many crazy characters I am excited to see, but I am most excited to see Pusher because he is my boss lol.

Q.  Not yet having seen the script, as an actor how do you prepare/research your role?

A.  As an actor I have done research to learn more about my characters and the film by studying movies with similar characters. I always like to get a good feel and understanding of my character and I feel you can identify quite a bit even without a script. I also watched the trailer to the short film just to get a better idea of everything.

Q.  What is the one thing in this world you are most proud of?

A.  The one thing in this world I am most proud of is being a great husband and father. My wife and kids are my world, they mean everything to me. Everything I do in this world is to provide a better living for them. They are truly my inspiration.

Q.  What was the last really great book you read? Why?

A.  I read many books, I love reading. One of the greatest books I’ve read is “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson. This book really drives home the importance of our daily decisions and what kind of impact each individual decision can have on your life over time. This book was a gut check for me, but it really raised my awareness on being as productive as I can be on a daily basis. This book explains why some people fail and why some people succeed.

Q. Have you ever won something?

A.  I did win a championship ring in semi-pro football with my team the Orlando Rage, back in 2012. This was in the Florida Football Alliance (FFA) league. My position was Defensive Back, or what we like to call “DB”. Still to this day, this has been one of my greatest memories. There was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that went into that. What made it so special is the previous year we went undefeated, but lost in the championship game. I suffered a fracture right hand in that game and it took me a few months to heal and rehab. During this time I was a little depressed and even considered giving up football altogether. I ultimately decided to return and that was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. We won the championship that year, what an amazing experience it was. My best memory was in the Semi-final playoff game, we were playing from behind the entire game, and it just felt like it was our game to lose. We stayed poised and came together as a team, and when my team needed a big play, I came through with interception/pick 6, which sealed the victory for us. I still remember the feeling; I felt like I was gliding all the way to the touchdown, it was a magical moment. I miss my team and I miss the game, but my focus is acting now.

Q.  What’s a Fear you are proud to have overcome?

A.  A huge fear of mine that I am proud to say I have overcome is public speaking. LOL I know it sounds pretty ironic being an actor, but it’s true. The fear of public speaking held me back from a lot of great things I could have experienced early on in life. The only way to overcome a fear is to face it often, so I continued to put myself in uncomfortable public speaking situations to help me grow as a person. Over time I continued to get better at it, but most importantly I became more comfortable with it. The reality is if I never would have overcome this fear, the world would not see Troy D. Williams as an actor today. I’m glad I overcame that fear LOL.

Q.  Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity? Who? Do you agree?

A.  I get told all the time that I look like celebrities. I get Idris Elba and Don Cheadle most of the time. I don’t really think I look like either of them, but I am grateful for the compliments. It just means I’m on my way!
